Like many readers both here in the UK and worldwide Eddie and I sat and watched the television yesterday as Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest in an historic state funeral. She certainly fulfilled her promise to devote her whole life to our service and that devotion to her duty is an example to us all.
Of course, it is now time for her eldest son Charles to take her place and at the age of 73 he becomes King Charles III. He is the oldest monarch to ever take the British throne. I feel sure he will do an excellent job because he is the longest serving, and the most prepared, heir to the throne in British history. I wish him well.
All the best Jan
